Nina Lucas of Coronation Street is seen resting on a “cold, wet floor” in “heartbreaking” scenes.
Nina Lucas, a fan favorite on CORONATION STREET, has been struggling since her boyfriend Seb Franklin was murdered in a hate crime. Nina has been unable to recall much about the attack due to the trauma, but in tonight’s episode, she will be forced to relive the night through terrifying flashbacks.
Nina (played by Mollie Gallagher) and Seb (Harry Visinoni) were viciously beaten by a bunch of Weatherfield adolescents due to Nina’s gothic appearance in Coronation Street episodes back in May. The ITV serial drew facts from the tragic real-life case of Sophie Lancaster to showcase the horrific hate crime in order to raise awareness of such assaults. Nina has been traumatized by the occurrence, but she will have to confront it in the next moments as she testifies in court to try to achieve justice for Seb. Mollie, a 23-year-old actress, talked about what it was like to film the tragic scenes and revisit Nina’s darkest moments.
“It was incredibly difficult because it was a reminder of the connection to the Sophie Lancaster story,” the actress said when asked about filming the flashback scenes.
“I’m just a character in a play, but this has happened to real people, and it’s heartbreaking.”
“It was cold and wet, lying on the floor – and we had to get back into the mindset that we had a few months ago, which was difficult, but I am so grateful to be doing this storyline on an issue that is so important to highlight,” she continued, “but I am so grateful to be doing this storyline on an issue that is so important to highlight.”
Sophie was murdered in 2007 by a gang of five boys who attacked her and her boyfriend because of their clothing choices.
The facts of what happened the night Seb was slain will be revealed in Monday’s episode.
Nina’s memory begins to resurface in two dramatic and moving flashback episodes as the court case approaches.
“She [Nina] is scared because she knows she can’t recall what occurred, and she’s putting a lot of pressure on herself,” Mollie said.
“A song plays in the café while she is asleep, and she recalls that it is the same tune that was playing in Seb’s van on the day of the attack.
“It brings up a memory for her, and although being upsetting, it brings.” Brinkwire Summary News”.
